What will you base your life on?
(In other words, "What will be the standard for your life?"

  • Science is unreliable because it does not answer the "big" questions of life.
  • Anything not written down is unreliable, because it is not permanent, and no one can go back and check what is said.
  • My personal experience is not reliable because it is too limited.
  • Societal norms and values are unreliable because they're too changeable.

Jesus said, after preaching,

24 “Whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. -- Matthew 7:24-25

Do YOU have a solid foundation for your life?

If your life is not based on the words of Jesus, you will not be able to hold up in the storms of life… and you will not “measure up” in the day of judgment.

Jesus said, 46 “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. 47 “And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 “He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.” – John 12:46-48
